Northwestern really didn’t look all that great over the course of its first win in the NIT against the Akron Zips. We have a big time question here against a Washington team on the other side of the country. It is a relatively short turnaround time for the Cats to get from Evanston to Seattle, and though we really don’t think that they are going to be able to get through this. Washington isn’t the greatest team in the world, and we don’t think that it is going to make it to Madison Square Garden, but in the end, the Huskies are going to be able to get the job done against Northwestern to end the season for the Big Ten bubble bust-ees.
NIT Free Pick: Washington -5.5
